This place is amazing. It really gives its competition a run for their money! There were 16 of us and our server was AWESOME! She was very attentive, kind, and patient as we all ordered and what not. Her name was Asli. I will be returning and asking to sit in her section!
We were running about 10 min late. I called to let them know. When we arrived our table wasn’t ready. Not off to the best start, they got a table ready for us. It was pretty tight, but our server went above and beyond to find us a table that had plenty of room and we weren’t cramped. The service was great! Everyone was friendly and helpful. The food was great and the ambiance was decent. We will definitely be back to eat everything we ordered, and try new things! The baked hummus was delicious!
We arrived with a fire alarm going off and almost left but we are glad we stayed. The food was delicious. We had the six Meza appetizer and I had the flat bread with ground beef. Turkish coffee and baklava for dessert. We will be back.
The mixed grill is an excellent value for two people!
Went here for my daughter’s 21st birthday celebration. We had a party of 9. My daughter was greeted with a rose upon entering the restaurant. We did the bottomless brunch. It was great! Food and drinks were coming to the table like crazy. Really good time.
Ali, our waiter, was awesome! Great food and great service. Would definitely come back.
Hidden gem. Really enjoyed. Great food, service and place. I’ll be back.
Everything Turkish was really good! Friendly service. Big place!
It was our first time here and we fell in love. The hummus was so creamy and those pita chips were delicious. I got the lamb and beef grill and it was out of this world, and for that price?!! The ambiance was great and the service was amazing. I can't wait to come back.
The food at Ankara is legendary, and consistently fabulous. The menu is rich and varied, and the prices are reasonable. The service is kind and attentive. We went for Valentine’s Day, looking for just a casual celebration, and we were so glad we did. If you like Mediterranean food, you will love Ankara.
Wonderful dining experience! We were a group of 8 and were sat at a very large, rustic table with comfortable chairs and banquette on one side. We instantly felt "at home." Our waiter was EXCELLENT! very attentive, made great suggestions, and food came out FAST! we sampled many dished and all were delicious! Great value for the amount of food and they offer some great tasting menus that we did not take advantage of. Everyone in our group agreed we would definitely go back for more!
The lunch special here is an amazing value. Food came out quickly and everything was yummy. Opentable points. Dosh cashback. Yelp cashback. AA miles. Groupon cashback. CC cashback. That’s a sextuple dip worth around 50% off. Just do it!
This was not my first time and Ankara never disappoints. My sister and I enjoyed brunch and received outstanding service from the moment we walked in the door.
Our waitress was amazing! So polite, so helpful she was the best!
We booked a table on a last minute whim and couldn’t have had a better experience! The food was amazing and the staff was so friendly. Definitely check this place out if you get a chance.
Great selection, very attentive server and food runner.
Solid food but not spectacular. Great service and nice ambience.
Food and service were great. We love this place.
Ankara was great! Will definitely go here again including with a large business group and just me and my family. Thanks for being so great in accommodating us! Laura Lee
Service was excellent but food was ok with a few good exceptions.
I love Turkish food and lived in Turkey for years. The food here is reasonably authentic, and the wait staff is friendly. Portions are very small, however, and nowhere close to large enough to justify the price. Ambiance lacking inside. If you can sit outside in warm weather it is pleasant enough, but there are much better Turkish places in the area.
The food was excellent the service was very good. The server was attentive and understood food allergies. They offered to check with the chef for any dishes they did not know the ingredients to ensure my food didn’t contain allergens. The mixed grill was excellent I was so hungry I forgot to take a picture and was large enough to share with 2 hungry adults.
Food was delicious! Such a great deal for bottomless brunch!
The brunch is a wonderful. You get to try lots of options on the menu because it’s unlimited tapas style. And the bottomless drinks is a bonus!
Absolutely brilliant meal. Order a number of different plates and share! Great food, great service and a great value.
The food was delicious! However for a bottomless brunch they were slow to refill drinks.
I wanted to love it. But the food was really bad. The service was very delayed, but they did everything they could to make it right. And that was much appreciated. The food though, man. Real bad.
I came here for restaurant week with a friend. My meal was okay -- comes in last when compared to Ambar and Compass Rose. They give you two starters, an entree and a dessert for restaurant week. I asked for recommendations on all the menu items and ordered what seemed to be received the best among patrons. I had the beet salad (6/10), some kind of beef and lamb ensemble with greek yogurt topping it (1/10), a chicken skewer (8/10) and the chocolate mousse cake dessert (wonderful, 10/10). Service was pretty bad...granted there was a large party seated in what I assume was our section, but the server was somewhat pushy and we had to ask for things multiple times (i.e. friend had to ask 3 times for a straw for her drink, when we ordered a dessert to go they brought the check and we had to ask for the dessert to be brought out to us, etc). After this bemusing experience, I got a notification from Open Table saying that ANKARA reported that we were a no show for the reservation. Ironic considering the amount of extra time they had to check us in while we were in the restaurant waiting for things. One of the messiest restaurant week experiences I've had to date and will not be recommending or returning.
This was the best Mediterranean food I’ve ever had in my life. Thank you so much for the great service and great experience!!!! Berk was a phenomenal host. We’re so thankful for his service.
Tasty food and great mezzes for sharing! Pricey but an excellent brunch deal.
The service was excellent, ambiance nice. Food was average
Excellent food and service great for a nice bite to eat.
The bottomless brunch is great. Recommend going with a couple friends to share different dishes. The food was tasty. It did get loud around lunch time as there were some large groups around us. Our server Berk was great. Very attentive and friendly. Great experience.
One of my favorite brunches in DC! Best bottomless deal! Just wish service was quicker especially from the bar when the 2 hour dining limit is so strict.
Restaurant week brunch
We enjoyed our time at Ankara during restaurant week. The food was well seasoned and prepared, the only issue that we encountered was during our appetizer, where the number of pita chips to hummus was minimal (one of my coworkers had only three chips on the plate) we asked for more, but they told us we had bread and dismissed us.
I will go back to Ankara, as we enjoyed the overall experience.
Many gluten-free options, great service, outstanding Turkish coffee, has a very high "health" rating, which suggests cleanliness
Had a most wonderful dinner at Ankara during DC Restaurant Week. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The menu was varied with very clear explanations and the wine menu had the most detailed descriptions of flavor that I have ever seen. I highly recommend Ankara for a great date night.
As a group of 5, we did 4 apps to share, then entrees of kebabs. Everything was wonderful. The staff made us feel so welcome by offering a chef’s treat upon arrival, as well as complimentary coffees at the end of our meal. It was a fun experience to dine there & all very well priced. Larger entrees were mid $20s while the kebabs were only $13. Highly recommend!
The food and service were very good. It was extremely noisy as there is no carpeting, which made it difficult to hear anyone across the table. However, when I arrived early and specifically asked that the check he given to me as I had invited guests, they allowed my guests to pay anyway. Very poor form. I do not think I will be returning.
